Content Strategy Gets World-Wide Attention

My own version of "you know you're a geek when..." is, I know I'm a geek because I check my server logs daily, just out of curiosity. I'm always amazed at where my site visitors come from. In the last few days, visitors to have come not only from all over the U.S. but also:
  • Abbotsford, British Columbia, Canada
  • London, England, United Kingdom
  • Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India
  • Buenos Aires, Argentina
  • Canberra, Australian Capital Territory, Australia
  • Philippines
  • Jamaica
  • Paris, France
  • Mumbai Maharashtra, India
  • Montreal, Quebec, Canada
  • Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa
  • Ljubljana, Slovenia
  • Kenya
  • Dublin, Ireland
  • Amsterdam, Noord-holland, Netherlands
  • Dubai, United Arab Emirates
  • Hong Kong, Hong Kong (sar), Hong Kong
Pretty amazing, and I don't believe it's an accident. People all over the world are running Web development projects and once you understand the value of content strategy, it just makes sense to learn more about it and incorporate the practice into your development process.

From now on, whenever anyone asks me why I think content strategy will take off as a professional practice, all I have to do it point them to my server logs. It certainly looks universal to me.
